  1. In my opinion, the timekeepers and especially Raymon Leon are a kind of police who believe that they are gods, only because they can live longer than others because they charge daily life time for their work and because they control the life time of the rest of the people.

  2. Raymond Leony and his colleagues, in the film, play the role of guardians of time. Hearing it may sound like a good deed, but the one they take is a bit bad and selfish. Its mission is to make people have the necessary time, but not in excess, that is, to make time in “good hands”. Their behavior throughout the movie, is very selfish and greedy as the protagonist and the girl are distributing time, so that everyone can live in good condition, while what they want is to kill them and that nobody has more weather. Working for the richest men in the world, bank owners … they follow orders and are well rewarded.

  3. I think that the timekeepers are other victims of the system. They only following orders of the government and in the film we can see that they don’t have too much time. I think that Raymond Leon only does his job and how he says his job is that time isn’t in the wrong hands.
    In my opinion the timekeepers aren’t the bad guys, the government is. From my point of view their job and mission are noble but their way of working and acting is questionable.

  4. The timekeepers are who control people’s time yo help those people, but in this movie is like reality and the unique time that they control is of the poor to give It to rich, because the timekeepers work for the rich. It’s sad but the reality is like this, and un this case the timekeepers have that behaviour because the rich can give them time, but the poor cannot.

  5. Raymond Leon is the police in charge of making the time keepers system work, he is obsessed with taking care of time even though he knows that what he does is wrong, it is what he has to do to survive since he has little time and they are not well paid. He was also poor and chose the way of working for the rich, and left behind, any failure that was in the system, only focuses on monitoring the time. In my opinion, I think their behavior is understandable, since for them to survive they have to do everything the rich ask of them.

  6. The timekeepers were the people who worked for administer justice and so manage time of the people. The timekeepers works for the rich and they always help to them. they were not rich because they live hand to mouth. They earn their salary every day. Finally I think there are a lot of similarities with the present because the police also have little money but they always help the rich before the poor.

  7. Time is like today’s money, and clocks are like a current bank. They see how strange that a person who could be immortal has given all his time to a poor person, and they don’t underestand that the “poor” has changed to a “rich” area. In my opinion, the work of timekeepers is like that of the police. Thay said that they to watch the time and the time was in the wrong hands.

  8. For me, timekeepers are a kind of private police, created so that the rich can continue living and the poor die, because they say that in order for one person to become immortal, many others have to die. In addition they say something interesting with which they are very right, in a couple of generations, everything will be the same, because there will always be someone wanting to be immortal.

  9. I think timekeepers are the police of that world, and in a better or worse way they are doing their job.
    It must be said that the protagonist suddenly gets a lot of time, since they don’t know what happened, it is normal for them to think that it was stolen by the main character.
    Although I liked it when Will Salas said that they should arrest everyone there, because the party was full of rich people, and as it happens in reality, surely many have become rich at the expense of the poor or maybe, stealing.

  10. I think timekeepers are the police of our world. They are going to capture the criminals of the world and, although they are sometimes wrong, they are there to protect the population.
    In one part of the movie, Will said that the timekeepers should have stopped the rich people of the party, because the money they have probably would be stolen. And this it’s similar to our world, because many people is rich for stolen o cheat and the police usually go for the poorest people or people who can’t defend with their money, since money gives power.

  11. In my opinion, the timekeepers are like policemen who are made for the rich and not for the poor, who are doing their job, because they are orders sent to them. Raymond Leon is doing his job and makes sure that the timekeeping system works. I think that everything he does is good because he did what the rich told him

  12. The timekeeper said that he was a timekeeper. He added that he was not concerned with injustice and he was only concerned with what he could measure. Seconds, minuts, hours. And then he said that, that time was in the wrong hands.
    On the scene he says that he cares about the time that has been stolen.
    I think that they work for the father of Sylvia. I think they do their job and when they know that Will was given a great gift they thought it was a robbery.

  13. In my opinion, the timekeeper is not a bad person, he really only does what the government tells him to do, and I also think he is the only policeman in the world. And I also think it’s strange that he doesn’t have as much time as he wants since he’s one of the most important ones. And for my part, his work is a very hard mission, and everything he does is very good.

  14. In my opinion, timekeepers do a good job because they have to manage time for everyone has the time that they should have. But in my opinion I think they don`t act as they want because they act as the father of the kdnapped girl who is rich commands them. Finally I think that he looks like the police because they don`t act for what they believe but for what they send them.

  15. The timekeeper takes care of that the population works like the police in our world even if they chase Will, I think that the timekeeper does his job well. In some ways it resembles the police of our world, because sometimes they do injustices against the most humble people.

  16. I think that the timekeepers are like the police of our lifes because they can control the time of the people and do whatever they want with that time, but I don’t really like the timekeepers because I think that the fact that they can recharge and increase their time is unfair because although they work for the rich, they are people just like the poor people. In my opinion, although I don’t like them, the movie wouldn’t be the same without them because they have an important role

  17. Timekeepers control that time is in good hands. They work for the government and don’t have to worry much about their life time because they can easily steal other people’s time under the guise of being a policemen. Raymond Leon is the leader of that group, when they detected that Will Salas had a long time they had to go to take it off. I don’t see timekeepers as bad people since they just follow their work. They are a little aggressive but it’s normal because otherwise people wouldn’t respect them.

  18. Raymond leon’s mission is try to the people of the ghetto not to change zones because otherwise the time system can be destroyed.
    In my opinion Rymond is a bit stupid because he comes from the ghetto. What he would have to do is help the protagonist instead of going to kill him and defending the system.

  19. In my opinion, timekeepers are a kind of police that makes sure everything is in order and they are the ones who control people’s time and make sure that the rich people live and the poor people die. They think they can live forever and they think they are like gods, but they are not.
    They control poor neighborhoods too much and do not exactly fulfill their mission

  20. Raymond Leon is the leader of the Timekeepers, who are special police that help keep control of the population and their time. As he said in the video, he considered himself a justice. He explained that he kept time, and that time was in the wrong hands. That’s why they want to take the time off from Will.
    They work for the Government, and this one pays them very badly. The Timekeepers hardly have time to do anything other than work, but they obey because they fight for something that they consider fair. Their behaviour is always violent with the poorest people. They try to kill Will, but never Sylvia.
    In contrast to the idea of “justice”, Leon is sent by Sylvia’s wealthy father to capture them. Leon rejects any bribe from Sylvia’s father, but curiously, he is always on the side of rich people. This behaviour is normal if the Government is corrupt and works in a way that only benefits rich people. As I said in my previous comment, what is justice for some people, it might not be for others.

  21. Timekeepers are the people who control the time . They are like the «police» in the real world .
    They always help the rich before the poor . In the film , the rich want to get the time of the poorest , and when a poor has a lot of «time» , people think that he has stolen it , as in the case with money today.
    Under my point of vew the fault isn’t the timekeepers since they are only doing their job , but those who have much more power , that is , governments.

  22. Timekeepers are policemen who control the population and the time. in my opinion, they abuse their power, especially when it comes to poor people. these government workers and they can steal people’s time under the guise of being police. raymon leon is the boss of the timekeepers. in my opinion, although they are workers, they are also part of corruption. many times they act with violence and superiority. I think this is a criticism of the current police.

  23. In my opinion, Raymond Leon’s work is too unfair because he abuses of his power and he is able to steal the time from everyone and use it on a bad way. Also, there is no one who can control him, and that gives him a great power.

    reported speech: He said that Henry Hamilton had given him over a century.

  24. In my opinion, Raymond Leon and his colleagues are a kind of police, but in the film they are called timekeepers and their job is to control what people live and they are, so to speak, immortal because with their work they earn more time to live.

  25. To my mind the timekeepers are like the police of the government, but not any government , a governmet who cling to a unfair system that give them all the power, and that time keepers are the responsable of protect the system and control the people so they don’t reveal
